Review: This is book one in this series and they should be read in order. It is a pretty amazing story. I love the way it was told and the characters are awesome. I love Cody and Remy. You can’t help but fall in love with them. Cody had been kidnapped, tortured, raped and in serious pain both physically and mentally. His family searched for him and when they found him, he was tied down and marks were all over his body. His friend Felix was the one that found him promised to never tell what had really happened to him. He shifted into his cougar and healed at least physically.
Remy had needed a ride from the airport so when he had called he got a hold of a cranky man. When he had found out that Cody was that cranky man, he also learned that this sexy man was his mate. Cody had given Felix permission to tell Remy what had happened to him. It tore Remy’s heart to know that his mate had been through something so horrific. He knew that he needed to be patient and give him some time to learn what he is about. He knew that he could fall in love with this man if he was not all ready in love with him.
The problem was there were missing shifters, which held the same clues that the man who hired the one to hurt Cody was in fact the one who was behind the differences. Cody had been abducted twice in such a short time, but the second one was easier for Cody to defend himself. They had so many dangers out there that Remy just wanted to keep Cody safe. Cody knew that he would love his mate and that he would heal enough to finish their bonding and mating. He just needed a little mystical help to finish healing him. In time, they would have a true mating.
They have poachers, shifter hunters, killers, gunfights, and many other dangers out there. You will fall in love with Cody and Remy. There is so much tenderness between them, and the way Remy is with Cody you can tell that he will always love his mate. It just makes for an awesome story. It has the right amount of everything that you would ever want in a story. I loved it and cannot wait to read the next book in this series. I have found another author to add to my library. Rae has an amazing gift at telling stories. It caught my attention at the very beginning and kept it all the way to the end.
I would recommend reading this book to anyone who loves paranormal books, hot men, tender stories, love, excitement, and danger.
